Division A Recruitment Event calling all Band 5 Registered Nurses –exciting news!

On the 10th Feb 2018 we are holding a Division A recruitment event and open day. We will give you a unique opportunity to explore Division A, meet our teams and interview for our rotation posts.

We are a  very proud team always striving to deliver safe, kind excellent care for our patients and would like you to be a part of it.  We have band 5 rotational posts in digestive diseases, MSK and critical care. We recognise your uniqueness and will create 3 bespoke rotations across Trauma and orthopaedics, Colorectal surgery, Gastroenterology, Endoscopy and Critical care. Each rotation placement will be 9 months  and any critical care choice will be the final placement to enable consolidation of skills, knowledge and learning.

We also have positions for our Pre-assessment unit. Are you looking to develop new skills involving most surgical specialities? Pre-assessment can be challenging at times, but in-turn it is very rewarding. We are a small team,  you will have your own caseload for all surgical procedures assessing the fitness for surgery. You will carry out tests required before any surgical procedure a few weeks prior to a patients expected procedure. 

If you are compassionate, caring, innovative and want to be part of a flagship division at CUH and experience a rotation programme underpinned with relevant education and support please apply to be interviewed on the 10th Feb 2018.

Any staff wanting critical care as part of their final rotation will be required to complete a numeracy assessment on the day.
